You Won’t Believe These Cringeworthy Interview Confessions!

By – Caitlin Johnson

Interviewing for jobs is hard work, don’t let anyone tell you different! A lot of preparation happens before your interview but you can’t always guarantee awkward conversations or sweaty palms won’t get the best of you.

We searched Whisper for their greatest and most cringeworthy interview fails and we weren’t disappointed. Surprised, yes. Confused, definitely. So even if you bombed the interview or didn’t supply a slam dunk answer to the “Tell me about yourself,”question, at least you (hopefully) didn’t get a bloody nose from a run-in with a clean glass window!
